FTE, Full Time Equivalent = uses the regular weekend calendar (5 days work, 2 days weekend) workdays * global workday length in calculations
CTE, Calendar Time Equivalent = uses the user's calendar's workdays * global workday length in calculations
A, Availability = shows the amount of hours the role could be allocated for in the specific time slot without overbooking the person
Person's maximum hours - already allocated hours per the slot's column
